Brown, 25, originally signed on with the Panthers as an undrafted free agent out of Ohio State back in May of 2014. Carolina declined to tender Brown an offer as a restricted free agent this offseason.
The Bills signed Brown to a one-year deal back in March but was waived coming out of the preseason. Buffalo recently re-signed Brown only to cut him loose last week.
In 2016, Browns appeared in all 16 games for the Panthers and recorded 27 receptions for 276 yards receiving 10.2 (YPC) and scored one touchdown.
We have him featured in our Top 50 Available Free Agents list.
Thornton, 28, is a former third-round pick of the Packers back in 2014. However, despite his draft status, Thornton lasted just a little over a year in Green Bay before he was waived at the start of the 2015 season.
After a brief stint with the Patriots, the Lions later claimed him off of waivers during the 2015 season and he finished out the year in Detroit before returning on a two-year, $3.3 million contract this past March.
Thornton was suspended for the first six games of the 2017 season for violating the NFL policy and program for substance abuse. Detroit just recently elected to cut Thornton loose.
In 2017, Thornton has appeared in four games for the Lions and recorded four tackles and no sacks.
